Suggestion Box: EndNote

By Curtin Library 16 April 2019 News & events No Comments »

From the suggestion box@Curtin Library…

Endnote .ris file downloaded from the library website does not have endnote filter included by default. Once .ris from curtin library is opened, endnote program has a import filter selection pop up, while there is none if .ris is downloaded from the database.

Endnote program is downloaded from curtin library.

Curtin library guide does not include guide regarding endnote filter, thus had to rely on guides from other uni such as UWA and VU Amsterdam.

The Library responds…

Thank you for your feedback.

Unfortunately, the catalogue is not always able to work seamlessly with EndNote and, in general, we don’t recommend that people export their references from there. Instead, we would recommend you use the databases which tend to be a lot more accurate in the presentation of reference information. That being said, you’ll find information on which import filter to select in the library’s Getting Started with EndNote guide in the section on exporting references from the Curtin Library catalogue (see the important notes box).

Thanks again,

Suggestion: SMS Service

From the suggestion box@Curtin Library…

The library at UWA have a service where you can SMS the library staff. It’s really good when people are talking too loudly. You should look into it.

The Library responds…

Thank you for your feedback and the suggestion which we will consider. You may also report problems like via email to Libraryenquiries@curtin.edu.au. This email address is monitored all the time that the Library Help desk on Level 2 is staffed and issues will be attended to as soon as possible once they are drawn to our attention.

Suggestion Box: Noise from Events

By Curtin Library 8 April 2019 News & events 1 Comment »

From the suggestion box@Curtin Library…

Can the Library please request that the music out on the Henderson Court Lawns on Friday nights is turned down? Who is responsible for this regular event? It is almost 7pm and I’m in the quiet zone on level 4 and can here ALL the lyrics of the contant playlist outside. The music has got progressively louder in the hour and a hlaf I’ve been here. It’s like having a noisy neighbourhood party. It’s very distracting, unprofessional and inconsiderate.

The Library responds…

Thank you for the feedback about the noise levels outside the Robertson Library on Friday. I agree it is not a good idea to locate noisy events in close proximity to the silent areas of the Library. I have passed your comments onto the team at ‘Explore Curtin’ who are responsible for booking events, highlighting how this impacts students and asking how we might avoid this in future. I would also encourage you to get in touch with them to register your complaint directly via email explorecurtin@curtin.edu.au.

Suggestion Box: Printer Queue

By Curtin Library 8 April 2019 News & events 2 Comments »

From the suggestion box@Curtin Library…

Hello,
Is there a way that we can clear the print jobs left over from previous users? On many occasions, I have set up at a computer and tried to print and find I am unable to because of ‘stuck’ jobs I can’t clear/delete. I then have to play a guessing game as to which computer I can log onto so I can print what I need. This is very frustrating to have to log on to several computers to be able to print some documents.
Thanks

The Library responds…

Thanks for your feedback, we’ll pass this onto Curtin’s IT department to see if they can resolve.

Suggestion: Level 6 Air-conditioning Temperature

By Curtin Library 4 April 2019 News & events 1 Comment »

From the suggestion box@Curtin Library…

Hello,
I would just like to suggest that I feel the AC at level 6 gets a bit too cold. You notice a lot of people wearing jumpers/hoodies. Yet still shivering.

Especially when it’s 28 degrees outside, you don’t think to carry a jumper/hoody in your bag. However as mentioned it barely helps against the cold the library offers. Out of curiosity what temperature setting is the library set to? Perhaps there’s only a handful of us that think it’s too cold.

The Library responds…

Thank you for your feedback. The temperature of the air conditioning is centrally set at the University and not individually controlled by the Library. I will make sure to pass on your comments to the University Properties area responsible for the air conditioning to investigate.
